The afternoon of our meeting was sunny and warm—his first tip—it’s still too early to begin planting—more frost is around the corner. He shared information on potting soil, mulch, water, sun, shade, planting times, best tomato, best sweet corn, Miracle Grow, etc. Club members enjoyed looking at his beautiful pictures of flowers and vegetables.
